Screw conveyors assist in moving, or conveying items such as: packages, equipment, food, or products from one area to another, usually for the purpose of performing automated or semi-automated finishing or manufacturing processes. These conveyors are able to transport dry, loose materials between places such as pits, trucks, barrels, rail cars, silos, hoppers, and vats.
To that end, screw conveyors can be found in a wide range of industries and applications, such as: construction, oil and gas, mining, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastic, food processing and agricultural.
In farming and agriculture, screw conveyors are used as a part of machinery, like balers or threshers that assist in conveying grains and animal feed to various locations. In food processing, screw conveyors transport dry ingredients—such as nuts, salt, and flour—that are used in making food products. The construction industry uses industrial screw conveyors to mix wet and dry ingredients to produce plaster or cement.
Our screw conveyors find their application in various industries such as:
Shaftless Screw conveyors
Bulk materials discharged from centrifuges, filter presses or mixers can easily be metered or conveyed using a shaftless screw conveyor. Our shaftless design provides a non-clogging conveying surface that allows difficult-to-convey materials to become easy-to-convey. The perfect solution for handling bulk materials with high moisture content is the KWS Shaftless Screw Conveyor.
Bucket elevators have proven themselves for vertical transport of many and diverse bulk materials for decades. As a market leader, BEUMER Group successfully established the belt bucket elevator technology in the market decades ago.
Belt bucket elevators were consistently developed in the past and enable the highest possible conveying capacities with maximum center distances today.
Chain bucket elevators are the preferred conveying systems for the transport of hot bulk materials and coarse-grained materials. With its central chain bucket elevators, BEUMER Group offers efficient and proven solutions even for the highest conveying capacities.
